Professional Staff Senate


The Professional Staff Senate is a part of shared governance at the University of Southern Maine.  We work to ensure that the voices of Professional Staff at the University are represented and seek to empower staff in a number of ways. 

Among many activities, we seek to keep Professional Staff informed about USM, represent the Professional Staff on a wide range of university committees, encouraging professional development through sponsoring events and scholarships, collaborate with the Classified Staff Senate, Faculty Senate, Student Senate, and Human Resources, co-host the yearly Employee Recognition Event, and work to improve the quality of life for Staff at USM.

Please reach out to Netty Provost, Chair of the Professional Staff Senate, if you have any questions or comments for us. 

Our meetings are always open to any member of the University community so we would love to have you join us!
